The school is nice (from the outside) BUT...... the school is absolutely terrible at communicating important information to the parents. They also are not good at handling bullying problems. and my kid is just in pre kinder!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL AT ALL
I would not send my kids to this school even if the school paid me. The neighborhood is bad and I don't want my kids going to school with the kids from this neighborhood. I live in the area and most of my neighbors are bad people. I can just imagine how bad their kids are.
This school disgust me at the lack of well roundedness they strived for in all students. Between no P.E. what so ever and no art, there was no integration between areas and subjects. The administration is also good at hiding things under a big rug.
Even though this is a magnet school, I was in no way impressed and did not send my children there for more than the year. Most of the teachers did not seem to be happy. As I would drop off my children who were in pre-k I would observe the teachers and found most of them to be bothered and somehow tired in the middle of the day. I would not say it was a bad school;however, I did expect more from a small school that was a magnet and formerly rated well.
